Hi all,

The Scripting plugin is also available in qt-project, and everybody is free to 
get, compile and contribute to it.

You'll find all informations here:

To answer some questions:

What's the status
* The scripting plugin is far from being done. You can barely do anything 
usefull right now, and the script API must be reviewed

Why not integrate it in Qt Creator
* Because it won't be ready for 2.5, and I want people to be able to test it.
Also, I'm not sure that putting all and every plugins in Qt Creator master is 
a good thing, I think we should work on an easy 3rd party plugin installer 
inside Qt Creator.

What's the long term plan
* to rule the world...
But except that, I want to be able to do anything boring and repetitive with 
scripts, and would like to replace the macros plugin with something generating 
scripts. Once I have achieved those 2 goals, I think I'll try to find new 
interesting things to do.
